Goose Art, Myth & Meaning
My Celtic goose art plus goose myth & meaning explored...
The farmyard goose was once widespread across Britain and Ireland – equally so its wild ancestor, the Greylag Goose.
The name is thought to relate to the fact that this grey goose ‘lagged’ behind other geese at migration time and was one of the last to leave for migration. Another suggestion is that it was originally the ‘grey-legged goose’ but since its legs aren’t grey, but orange, I feel this theory is unlikely.
Even in the earliest times, geese were seen as special. In Ancient Egypt, the goose “was the Sun as it emerged from the primeval egg” (Albert Champdour, Le Livre des Morts) – a solar bird-god that laid the golden egg (the sun) each morning.
Pharoahs who identified with the sun were shown with their souls in the shape of a goose. And when a new pharaoh was proclaimed, four wild geese were released to the four corners of the Earth to tell the gods of the new earthly ruler. So the Egyptians saw the goose as a messenger between heaven and earth.

Starlings have got to be one of our most beautiful native British birds, with stunning, iridescent greens and purples in their glossy black feathers and tiny ‘stars’ of glittering white…
They are also graceful birds, with stunning balletic displays in flights of ‘murmurations’ when thousands of birds take to the skies in swirling, mesmerising unison.
I’ve been so lucky, this winter, to see some close to home as the starlings group together for safety in huge roosts at dusk and trace their meandering route across the skies to these roosts, with their impressive murmurations.
Coleridge writes in 1799 of a starling murmuration seen:
“Starlings on a vast flight drove along like smoke, mist, or any thing misty without volition …. and still it expands and condenses, some moments glimmering and shivering, dim and shadowy, now thickening, deepening and blackening!”
Celtic-inspired fieldfares art by Lotti Brown...
I was inspired to create my fieldfare artwork by seeing flocks of this beautiful winter bird in the fields where I take my morning dog walks.
This is a bird that I feel very fondly towards, as it’s a bird that I used to see often as a child, in the flat fields of Lincolnshire and the cold winters of the 1970s – my classroom window looked out onto the fields and I could watch fields of lapwings and fieldfares as I sat at my lessons.
